Jobs For Teens in California

It is hard to imagine a place with more for teenagers to do than California; there are a myriad of funky shops in Los Angeles and San Francisco, eclectic coffee houses, beaches, mountains, sporting events and theme parks. The state offers a little bit of everything, along with a year-round mild climate. Unemployment rates are as low as 2.6% in some parts of the state, leading to opportunities for work for teenagers who are interested in gaining work experience and earning money.

If you're under 16 years of age, there are specific labor laws in California that don't allow you to work for traditional employers.  Of course, if you're 14 or 15 years old you can get a work permit in California, but otherwise there isn't too much information on this page that will help you.  With that being said, if you're under 16 years of age and don't have a work permit, please select the appropriate age below to find jobs that suit your age group.

If you're under 16 years old, your job options are different. Please select your age below:
